Power operated paddy seeder: A review

Umesh Kumar Dhruw and DK Roy
The power operated seeder is a device which is used for sowing the pre-germinated or wet or dry seeding. It is a substitute for other sowing methods in puddle conditions because of its main advantages of time saving, saving the transplanting cost, being easy to work, satisfying profit and a satisfactory yield in the paddy crop. Fabricating the paddy seeder unit can be useful in reducing the hard work of sowing in puddles or dragging of the manually drum seeder, besides other benefits of pre-germinated row sowing. Transplanting of rice seedlings is a tedious work for farmers, time-consuming and costly work needs to be done by direct seeding, decreasing the physical work of farmers require by more than 20 percent in terms of working hours. This seeder can be used save the seed; saving time and better yield production were comparable to the transplanted method and manual drum seeding, whereas they were better in comparison to the broadcasted method.
